    A friend has run across this problem.

    He gets e-mails with sound and pictures sent from others. The sounds
    and pcitures are present OK. However when he forwards them to others,
    or even sends a copy to himself, the sounds and pictures are somehow
    stripped off.

    Any idea what casues this and how to fix?

    thanx

    Your friend is not including the attachments when he 'forwards' the email.

    The best 'fix' is to stop forwarding 'stuff' ;)) (Seriously; binary
    attachments are a favourite way for "viruses" and "spyware" to spread).
